Application of additive manufacturing technology in veterinary surgery

The implants used in the treatment of the bernese mountain dog.

ADEISS was co-founded by the university of western Ontario, London Medical Network and renishaw.The center focuses on the development and commercialization of medical devices and medical devices, as well as assisting other companies to develop medical technologies to promote the transformation of global medical practices.

"During the operation, the tumor was removed along with a portion of the edges," said the veterinary surgeon, Voxelmed's 3D designer and chief executive.

Jan Klasen explains, "tumor growth in the skin, rather than the growth in the upper jaw, but we still need to be maxillectomy, with 45 mm x 50 mm lump resection and 30 mm lateral margin of the organization.We then placed the implant in place and used surgical screws to fix it, and the facial axial flap was prepared to cover the surgical site and implant.Because the structure of the nose is not deformed by the absence of hard tissue, the Bern mountain dog retains a normal face shape.

The implant design and manufacturing process took only two weeks.In this particular case, the tumor of the sick dog continues to grow.Therefore, if the time spent in the implant is too long, the original implant will no longer be suitable for the affected area."

"If no material manufacturing technology, then after removal of the tumor, we almost impossible to repair maxillary sickness dog, because the geometry of the area is extremely complex, implants must be with a dog bone structure of the existing similar shape and function.Use increase material manufacturing implants to maintain oral and nasal original shape and function, ensures that a dog has a higher quality of life, like natural growth of the skull and upper jaw, can help it easy breathing and eating. "

"As far as I know, this is the first implant for this type of operation.Before this case, most veterinarians were not even aware of this medical technology.Germany is planning a similar trauma repair operation, and people are working on how to make all kinds of animals benefit from such operations.

The 7-year-old was released the following day.Although it took a short period of painkillers and antibiotics, it was able to breathe properly through the nose and eventually recover fully.Without advances in manufacturing technology, the beloved family member may not survive as long as he does now.
